A PUMPKIN SPICE POST...where anything goes


out theme is
"anything goes" and to match our weekly challenge of "stars and/or fireworks" i made an
 "uncle sam" card.

An Uncle Sam's Card
4" x 7"
i used the george and basics shapes cricut cartridge to design my uncle sam but you can do all by hand. it is not a hard project to do but it did take me a bit of time. but then, all takes me a bit of time :P

my uncle sam moves too. his body was attached with crochet thread.
the "round sticker" is from my stash of the pumpkin spice store and the "usa" is from another paper punch.

i dry embossed the background and the red with the cuttlebug.
his beard was made using twine. the stars, pant/hat stripes were stamped on. the blue star was punched out. i colored his cheeks with a regular colored pencil.

his eyes were made with the crop a dile and so were the holes to connect the parts.
i also inked everything for more definition.

your next stop in this blog is dear

thanks for stopping by and,
 i hope you
have a great weekend!
